Leslie SbroccoMy name is Leslie Sbrocco and I'm the host of Check, Please! Bay Area. Each week, I will be sharing my tasting notes about the wine the guests and I drank on set during the taping of the show. I will also share some wine tips with each episode.

2009 Trefethen Dry Riesling, Oak Knoll District, Napa Valley, California $20
Riesling is undergoing a renaissance and with its racy, refreshing character, this wine is one of the reasons why. A poolside sipper extraordinaire or a match for lighter-style salads and piquant cuisine, it ranks among the most versatile of wines.

2008 Gainey Merlot, Santa Ynez Valley, California $20
With a velvety texture and vibrant fruit flavors, Gainey captures the appeal of Merlot. Hailing from Santa Barbara County's Santa Ynez Valley, the family-owned winery focuses on sustainability in its grape growing and winemaking. Their whole range of must-buy wines combines value with quality.
